Sotheby's New York sold Night Fell Upon Us (Up On Us) for $4,527,000.

Indeed, Artprice lists four artists born after 1982 worth watching. On May 19, Christina Quarles (b. 1985) joined the very select club in this category to break the $4 million mark at auction: Sotheby's New York sold her acrylic Night Fell Upon Us (Up On Us) for $4,527,000. Gagosian's protégée Anna Weyant (b. 1985) was equally successful, with five of her works selling for over $900,000. Matthew Wong (1984-2019) remains the most successful artist of his generation at auction, with sales totaling $18 million this year, followed closely by Amaoko Boafo (b. 1984), whose eleven works, presented in 2022, found buyers despite spectacular estimates.
